Donating to Right 2 Thrive is so satisfying because, through their website and social media, you can immediately see those funds being put to work with the amazing things that R2T is doing EVERY day for the children and the community in Kenya. I love to follow the updates on Facebook of each child- I feel like I know them personally and am so proud of each of their accomplishments! Additionally, the training that R2T is doing for Kenyan women is absolutely amazing and inspiring! Kudos to Right to Thrive for making a difference!
